The Motley Collection
A series of short online classes via video & audio conferencing.
I’ll be taking you through the steps to complete the project, giving you tips and tricks as we go. You can either sit back and watch or get involved and sew along with me. If you don’t want to head out to pick up supplies please use what you have at home, I’ll help you make it work! Or ask for me to send out a kit for you. Book one class or join all of them. Classes are suitable for kids and teens, in fact I’d love it if they are involved too.
Classes run every fortnight with a couple of different time options.
$20 per class – email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place
